How do I find out when HP is using it's 40% Adsense on my hubs and when the 60% Adsense ads are mine. I understand its a 60/40 split in my favour. But its no good if HP are putting their ads on during peak viewing times and my ads on when no-one is online.
You can to View Source on your internet browser and check for your Adsense ID. I don't think there's a definite means to check.
As Whitney says you can do a random sample by checking the page source. The 40/60 split is random so it doesn't favour one party or the other. Hubbers have tried this and report it does average out as stated by HubPages.
Hi all, thanks for responding. Darkside, as I understand it, when an 'Ad' is clicked it is not split 60/40. The 'Ad' is soley HP's or mine, depending on when they make those ad's theirs or mine on the relevant page? I will have to read up again I think I have confused myself now. LOL
When you get the ad impression, you get 100% of the revenue of that click.
HubPages Inc can't control the quality of the viewer as to whether they will click an ad or not. The ad impressions are random.
Check the FAQ, and read up other Hubbers hubs on how hubpages works. But rest assured, HubPages Inc aren't trying to manipulate the system to their own advantage. Yes, they're in this business to make money. But the only way they can do that is to maintain a system that suitably rewards the content providers.
Each time a person views (loads) your Hub, the computer generates a random number. Based on that number, it sends HubPages Adsense ID or yours to Google to get the ads.
You can check this for yourself by downloading your Hub 100 or 1000 times - we did the experiment ourselves - and you will see that it's a 60/40 split.
Of course, if your page is only being viewed once a day, it's going to take months before you have a statistically valid sample size, so if there are only 10 page views they might be 5 and 5 or 3 and 7, or even 1 and 9 in very rare cases.
The more times the page is viewed, the closer the split will become to a perfect 60/40.
This works the same way every minute of every day, 24/7.
HubPages wouldn't last long if it was cheating people!
Thank you Jenny. That has confirmed initial my thoughts. I was worried they could be working it like, say a fruit machine percentage payout. Here in the UK they have to display that it will return about a 75% payout or higher. What people don't realise is that could be 75% of a million pounds, so the first 250,000 thousand pounds it doesn't have to pay out. Thanks again.
